Data Entry and Processing

In most instances, research data collected from mail surveys will need to be entered manually or electronically and then processed before the data can be analyzed. Manual Data Entry Services – Superior DataWorks offers both numeric as well as text data entry services. Unless the client objects due to cost constraints, Superior DataWorks carries out an extensive full double data entry process since this is the ideal situation and the most reliable.However, if this is not a feasible option, due to cost, time, and staffing required, Superior DataWorks will do a less extensive data entry process – whereas double data entry is performed only a sample of the surveys to be processed.

Electronic (Scannable) Data Entry Services – Scannable data entry services replaces manual data-entry by automatically capturing the information from your questionnaires by scanner.  For high volume surveys, this methodology is typically faster and more cost-effective than manual data entry services.  Superior DataWorks has the ability to scan thousands of single or double-sided sheets per hour. These surveys can range in size from that of a postcard to custom sized booklets. Surveys can be completed with a pen or pencil.

Data Cleaning Process – Before any data file is tabulated, a series of data cleaning checks are performed to check for out-of-range codes, duplicate records, skip logic errors, omissions, etc.

All data entry services are performed on-site.  Upon request, our data department can provide you with a clean final dataset in SPSS, Excel, ASCII, tab, or comma delimited file format.
